English Language Learner

Based on a student's English Language Proficiency, he/she may be eligible for English as a Second Language (ESL) Services. Niles Community Schools provides ESL supplemental instructional programs to eligible children until they reach proficiency. These services support regular classroom instruction and focus on the student's language and academic needs to ensure success in school. The goal of all programs is for students to learn English, and to meet age-appropriate academic achievement standards for grade promotion and graduation.

To be exited from ESL services, students must test "Proficient" or "Advanced Proficient" on Michigan's English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA). Once exited, students are monitored for two years. Students with disabilities will be provided with services in conjunction with the services identified on his/her Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
